Chris Hughton will be in charge of Newcastle United until the end of next season.
Chris Hughton – earned Geordie fans’ support – so have the players
One of the only good things that was announced last night – apart from Chris – is that Mike Ashley is putting in another £20M into the club coffers.
We’re not sure what that means, and if that is money that will all be available in the transfer market – if it is that’s great news for the team, and for Chris Hughton.
“It is a very proud day for me to be named as the manager of this magnificent football club.”
Ashley paid a visit to the Newcastle Benton training ground yesterday – he was spotted arriving by helicopter – before announcing that he has given up trying to sell the club for the time being.
Hopefully he announced his decision to Chris and the players – who are the most important part of the club right now, and hopefully will continue to be fully supported by the fans.
We cannot group Chris and the playing staff with the stupidities of Mike Ashley.
We fully support Chris and the playing staff at Newcastle, and if they can get the club promoted this season, it will be a magnificent accomplishment – simply magnificent.
Howay The Lads!!
